Build a roadmap that shows exactly what charities are you trying to work on. Since you will be contacting people, businessmen, ordinary and influential persons in society, you will be expected to tell them an overview of your plan. Your plan should include how you will support the charity program after you have raised the funds. There are thousands of people who donate money to charities on a regular basis. However, convincing them that your plan is genuine is the key to success in this work.
Jot down all the necessary details of your fundraising plan and charity you want to set up. Make a list of potential philanthropists and persons you think can help. Mention what sources you will be using in your fundraising campaign. Finally, the charity you have decided to establish should be mentioned in detail. This brief document should serve as a guide to those willing to donate funds to you. A plan without written document will not work as it will fail to paint a clear picture of your intentions and plans.
Decide on a type of fundraiser you will use to get the money. You can first try your own community and circle of friends and family. They say charity begins at home, so it will be wise to check with your relatives and friends who are capable of giving you money. In order to get people’s attention, you can arrange get-together parties at home or even a seminar addressing concerns of children. Since you have already decided what type of charity you will be raising money for, you will hold get-together programs and seminars according to the nature of charity.
Recruit members and volunteers who will be working for the charity. You can use the Internet, asking people to volunteer for the program. Schools are a good platform as you can recruit a dedicated team of volunteers.
Keep the children you are raising money for with you in every event. If you have a website, you can share videos of the children and their background with the world.
